My friend Sheryl is back from a trip to Italy and scored me a copy of the August La Mia Boutique. This is a pattern magazine from Italy similar to BWOF. Except in these, I’m practically plus size 🙂
There are a couple of really cute looks in this edition.
Love this dress. There is neat ruching / elastic in the straps
Basic tee with cap sleeves
A nifty sweatshirt dress / tunic which would be awesome for fall in a sweater knit.
A neat asymetric sweatshirt
Fun trench style jacket. Love the Public Enemy patch. Bring the noise…
Tunic with buttons. Love it.
And a skirt that I love, but could never get away with wearing
Also, Trena *did* come this weekend. She sewed up a maxi dress, we recorded a new podcast and I traced and cut out a dress pattern. This was about midnight. She really wasn’t trying to have her photo taken.
And Friday night the cop and his sister had a joint party. I took my friend below as my date and wore my maxi knit dress, Simplicity 3503. I swear this dress can go anywhere!
